Puppies. Milk bar. Wine barrels. Happy tears. An epic married singing duet. BROOKE AND DARREN ARE MARRIED!
This pumpkin spice Cape Cod wedding was complete with an oceanfront ceremony, flower girl grandmas, spiced rum cider, pumpkin candles, and fresh donuts - their reception literally SMELLED like all the best parts of fall! And for this party animal, Drake-loving couple and all their wild friends and family, they turned Wequassett Resort into the hottest nightclub around.
Hillary and Phil threw a backyard wedding on the beach in Rhode Island - AND brought their adorable pup Zeus! If you ever wondered what DIY done perfectly looks like, stop right here. Almost everything you see, bride Hillary made, and groom Phil planned an exquisite menu of all different tastes around the world - don’t miss this one of a kind wedding!
When it rains, rock with it! This luxurious Newport wedding at Castle Hill Inn was nothing short of spectacular: thousands of roses, lush flower arrangements, modern chandeliers, a swoon-worthy satin dress, oceanside cliffs, and even late night Milk Bar truffles! Amanda & Vinny tied the knot and you’re gonna LOVE these photos!
Kelly & Joey threw a WILD party last night at the The Red Lion Inn Resort - and I bet you've never seen quite an epic entrance as this one! From trolley rides to Old Scituate Light, to body surfing bridal party members, to an antique Rolls Royce ride, these two had the #bestdayever as #kellswishesdegraanted!
In the words of the groom, “People said it will never work - she is a beautiful angel and he is a unique-featured weirdo.”
Mallory & Ryan have known each other since high school, through awkward encounters and mutual friends. After realizing they were particularly sweet on each other, Mal & Ry patiently waited for the right timing to be together. Between law school, medical school, Connecticut, and Boston, Ryan popped the question by the romantic reflecting pool in Boston, and she said YES!
With the forecast showing thunderstorms and rain at Willowdale Estate all day, Mallory & Ryan prepared themselves for a wet wedding day. It poured all morning long, as predicted. As Mallory descended down the stairs to see her husband for the first time, something miraculous happened: the SUN came out. After a joyous first look, the ceremony began. Right before their first kiss, everyone could hear the pitter patter of drops bouncing off the tent - it began to pour as they sealed their marriage with a kiss and ran down the aisle.
Here's to an INCREDIBLE Italian honeymoon and a lifetime of love, dancing, basketball, scooper bowl ice cream, getaway weekends to Burlington, beer, running, and HAPPINESS! <3

"I choose you."
First, Katie & Marty wanted to throw a surprise wedding at their annual clambake. Then, they decided to try out their own backyard for a low-key wedding. Finally, they found the perfect mix of rustic and beautiful: Harrington Farm. They got ready in an old farmhouse just like the one they live in together. Needless to say, everything was utterly perfect.
With a piece of her dad's shirt sewn into her dress, and a special message for her dad sewn onto his tie, this wedding was full of sentimental details. Katie's mother's eyes began to well up with tears as she saw her own veil wrapped around her daughter's bouquet, and the tears were FLOWING during Katie & Marty's *almost* first look. The rainy forecast made way for sweet sunshine all day as Katie & Marty danced on cloud nine through their wedding day with tons of laughs, an abundance of tears, and so many loving guests.
As Katie's father simply put it, their families aren't gaining a son or a daughter, they're gaining one hell of a couple. Forever and always, The Derens.
Thank you to the fabulous vendors!

"It's never too late to live happily ever after"
Joan & Jeff have such a wonderfully quirky love story. In 2015, these two met at a gathering and were found "making out in the kitchen like two teenagers." They found out that they both drove the same exact Town & Country minivan, both had dogs named Zoey, both had sisters named Anne, and were blind in their right eye. Well, these Californians took a trip to Maine, and Jeff proposed to Joan at the York Harbor Inn and sealed the deal! Their bubbly personalities are meant to be, always laughing, dancing, kissing, and caring for everyone around them. They celebrated alongside their family, friends and a whole bunch of starfish. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Connell for getting #yorkedinmaine !

"Come let me love you, let me give my life to you."
Alia and Austin descended down the escalator to the lower level of the Blue Wing, stealing a kiss while their guests cheered them on. This was their first entrance as husband and wife. They took to the dance floor, as their bridal party looked on with joy in their eyes. Alia’s grandfather nervously picked up the microphone. He looked over to his daughter, Alia’s mother, for reassurance. She reached over and pulled a guitar from the case by her feet. Alia’s mother began to strum, as Alia’s grandfather began to sing: “You fill up my senses, like a night in a forest, like the mountains in springtime, like a walk in the rain…”
Alia and Austin interlocked their fingers, pulling each other close. They slowly swayed, as their family serenaded them to John Denver’s “Annie’s Song.” The room was silent, listening to the duo, with the exception of a few sniffles here and there. As the song ended, her grandfather gave her two thumbs up, as she ran over to give him the biggest hug. “You did great Papa - you did great.”
Alia and Austin managed to incorporate dinosaurs in every part of their day, whether it was walking down the aisle to the Jurassic Park theme song, to literally strutting around in dinosaur heels all day. Oh, and who can forget their kissing dino cake topper, or more importantly: the dinosaurs that beat extinction and joined the party? They poured themselves into each detail of the day, and enjoyed every last minute of it (and every last bite of their chocolate peanut butter cake).
To road trips, to ups and downs, to love, to snuggles, to MARRIAGE.
Thank you to all the amazing vendors!
